Curry Eggs over Rice (For Leftover Hard Boiled Eggs)

Curry Eggs over Rice (For Leftover Hard Boiled Eggs) created by HeatherFeather

A delicious main dish that uses up those leftover hard boiled eggs from Easter. The lady who prepared this on the show said that her mother used to make this dish often during Lent. I adapted this recipe from one I saw on "Calling All Cooks" on Food Network. This recipe halves beautifully. This is not a particularly spicy dish, just rich in flavor. (Note:There is no curry powder in this recipe - you are essentially making your own blend using various spices.)

    Not bad! The flavors were great - I really like the combo of spices to make a curry, my family doesn't like too much spice and that usually rules out store-bought curry pastes. I halved the recipe for my family of three. My only complaints are that it was a lot of prep work (more than 15 minutes), and there wasn't enough of it. I will be making this again but won't halve it next time - if we have extra, I'll let you know how it keeps for leftovers!

    Nice enough but not something I'll make again. Just didn't have that special something. Would be OK as part of a buffet I guess. Needed some vegies to go with it.
